Hallway and Bathroom

 This is the completed hallway.  I have been using little brass grommets to make it easier to align the staircase railing. I like the way it looks and lines up. I haven't found any of my dollhouse furniture and accessories so it is rather uninteresting at the minute.



 Unfortunately I spent a good hour or so opening boxes to find my plaster brick making kit that was bought to do the bathroom wall. When it was finally located I realized that I had ordered the slate tile plaster kit not the brick kit. So back to the internet to place another order with The Little Dollhouse Company and now we wait....
I haven't shabbied up the walls of the bathroom yet, but wanted to show of my handmade bead board using cardboard and a utility knife.  I am quite pleased with the way it turned out.

I have applied one coat of wax to the floor, but it needs more and then a good old hand polish. Oh, and I put together my little Chrysnbon bathroom kit which is so sweet and perfectly proportioned in my humble opinion.

  2. It's all coming together nicely. The grommets are a good idea for the stairs. And isn't the Chrysnbon bathroom great? It is so cute and fits in even the tiniest of spaces for a great price. Well done with your bead board too!

  3. Good Morning,
    Things are looking so good!! Great job on the bead board.
    Yes, I agree the bathroom kit is a very nice scale. I used the bath and hand basin for the barely-seen children's bathroom and liked it very much. It is very easy to paint as well.
    Snowdrops and aconites appearing ..... At last!

    1. I haven't decided if I want to paint the little bathroom suite. I imagine that perhaps a sprayed on enamel would look best? I will go back and have a look at yours. Congrats on the arrival of spring...sigh, ours is not yet here.

  4. Hi Skulptress, I must say that your staircase looks FABULOUS, and I love the color that you have chosen for the walls in the hallway. I also must commend you on the successful looking beadboard in the bathroom. I Never would have guessed that it was made of cardboard!!! - Quite the professional job that you've done so far. And Most impressive :D

  7. Great progress here and I'm very impressed with your handrail. That must have taken some working out and the panelling is just perfect in the bathroom.
